There is an undeniable buzz around renewable energy. In fact, renewables like biomass heating have continued to grow as a sector in recent years. Biomass technology is becoming more and more popular on the domestic market for its energy efficient and low carbon boilers in particular. Did you know that a biomass boiler installed in a home could potentially save up to 40% on standard oil and/or gas bills every year? It is certainly tantalizing for any consumer and its renewable status may even make it the one of the best ways to heat homes moving into the future.
As experts in biomass heating for Duluth and the surrounding areas, we would like to discuss what we think makes wood boilers the way of the future.
First, what is ‘biomass’ exactly? Biomass energy is essentially created from any organic material that is available on a renewable basis. Biomass boilers often use wood chips and pellets as suitable fuel. These organic materials are renewable, with growth capable of new resources time and time again, and the ashes from production can even be used as fertilizer.
It’s simple; biomass heating is environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and efficient. On the contrary, coal, gas, and oil are fossil-based, non-renewable resources. And in the last year, costs for these commodities have soared; even electricity prices are climbing. With biomass heating you won’t have to worry about the high cost of wintertime heating again!
The cost of creating biomass is also much less than non-sustainable energy sources, and is better value than most renewable energy options as well. Because of this, positive trends towards renewables are just beginning and the potential for biomass heating to be used on an even larger scale continues to grow. Looking to the future, there is nothing to suggest biomass heating will not be the renewable of our future.
